Why choose Hospital for Special Surgery for care?
Hear directly from our patients.


Robert Malafronte,
Sag Harbor, NY hip and knee replacement
HSS is the best; I would not hesitate to recommend to anyone. My surgeon, Dr. Chitranjan Ranawat, has had a life transforming effect on me and my family. I thank God everyday for having him as my doctor. He has replaced both of my hips and recently both my knees. I am truly blessed to have him as my doctor and surgeon! I do not know where I would be today without him and his team, they gave me my life back. Thank you Dr. Ranawat and HSS!
